—Visibility for Achieving IT Value
Enterprise Architecture and Tools Selection
Is this your organization?
- Disparate tools everywhere—some never fully implemented.
- Mixed resource skill sets reign.
- Not invented here is frowned upon OR fully embraced.
These organizational outcomes are costly, impacting IT's ability to effectively deliver and sustain service to the business. Our assessment approach reviews current inventories and architecture artifacts. We believe enterprise architecture is a framework for determining how services are designed, tested, deployed and monitored. Monitoring starts with the performance of the service, not the infrastructure. Enterprise architecture starts with the business needs and develops how to select and implement technologies and their integration with the business. Critical Success Factors and associated Key Performance Indicators must be defined for visibility into the effectiveness of the architectural decisions and associated policies.
